Description: Free online tools that "let you play with your own creativity," designed by two Dutch industrial and interaction designers in Eindhoven. Create your own patterns with Repper; your own tessellating coasters with Epa:kato; your own fractals and other complex shapes out of simple instructions with Elise; or your own nets of boxes in any size with the parametric tool Magic Box, complete with dashed lines to indicate flaps to "fold here." See also studio:ludens' visualizer so_many_a_second, which represents statistics on a human scale by depicting rates as ongoing streams of events cascading down your screen: plastic cups used by airlines per second; smoking deaths per second; additional people per second who lack access to safe water; stars born per second.
